Would you listen to Addicted Men: Alcohol, Drugs, Sex, Porn and More again? Why?
Yes! I've read a lot of books on addictions but this one hit the nail on the head for me. I especially liked the way she helps you determine how "bad" he is on a scale, and how to know if he can be helped. Also good to know are the "early warning signs."
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Any additional comments?
I've been in an addictive relationship for five years. The first four I was a co-addict with him, but once I got sober he pulled away. I will not give up on him until I've tried everything in this book. If I do decide to leave at least I'll know I tried everything and can walk away lighter and with more dignity. I highly recommend this book.
